Kids’ and family channel Pineapple TV has been launched in Nigeria via StarTimes.

Aimed at children aged four to 16, the African channel makes use of stories and characters to inform, educate and entertain local and diaspora viewers.

Pineapple TV marketing director Yetunde Falade said the launch “ensures the company fulfils another of its mandates, which is generating opportunities for professionals within this sector of the Nigeria Creative Industry, for example, script writers, animators, actors and directors to name a few, thereby contributing positively to the Nigerian economy through job creations and involvement of locally selected talents and content production.”

Ashionye Raccah, Nigerian actor and host of Pineapple TV cooking show Cool Kids Cook, added: “It is vital that the African child is exposed to safe and quality programmes which educate and entertain. The result will manifest in a more informed, educated, aware, open-minded and confident adult.”

Pineapple TV can be found on StarTimes channel 129.
